Sukhna Lake located in Chandigarh, India is an artificial lake at the foothills of the Himalayas. However its so big that at first view you will not able to think that its artificial. In my view it's one of the best places to visit if you are in Chandigarh ( off course after Rock Garden). Please plan to visit this place either in mornings or evenings... More

Its a man made lake (big pond). Lots of eateries around and activities for children. Gets very crowded but overall an enjoyable time can be spent.

This artificial lake has some real importance for chandigarh. The best time to witness is during early morning...people of all religions, ages, shapes and sizes gather here for a ritual so deeply associated with Sukhna lake.. It's the morning walk. Some walk real fast, other just maintain a decent pace. You will also find groups of runners. To my mind... More

The area is keep really clean and free from usual food... More

A bit of LA in the Punjab! Jogging tracks, revelers by the lake side etc. Not typical Punjab but great fun to amble and people watch.

Great views of the foothills from the lake. Quite a large lake, so if you walk away from the main part you can get some peace and quiet. Cafe on site and some small rides for kids. Can also take a pedal boat in the lake, but do this off-peak when there are no queues. We went on a Thursday... More

I will rate this as No.1 attraction in the city of Chandigarh, not only because it is a nice location to pass time with your family in the evening but also because there is nothing else great as an attraction in this city , the other exception being the Rock garden which will be the 2nd best. It is a... More
